The Harris Charity can help young people under the age of 25 years who live…
If you are pregnant or have a child under four years old you could get Healthy Start vouchers to help buy some basic foods. This important means-tested scheme provides vouchers to spend with local retailers. Pregnant women and children over one and under four years old can get one £3.10 voucher per week. Children under one year old can get two £3.10 vouchers (£6.20) per week.
Women and children getting Healthy Start food vouchers also get vitamin coupons to swap for free Healthy Start vitamins. Healthy Start vitamins are specifically designed for pregnant and breastfeeding women and growing children. Your midwife or health visitor will be able to tell you where you can swap your coupon for vitamins in your area.
Applying for Healthy Start is easy. If you already have an application leaflet just fill out the form inside, ask your midwife or health visitor to sign it and send it to us using the freepost envelope attached. If you don’t have an application form you can find one here.
